The thing is the GOP doesn't want to stop even when the get the last punch. If they had any intention of even pretending to want to reestablish norms they would be doing so right now, as there is a very real chance that they would be able to have gotten the last punch in, but instead they are just plowing ahead. It literally makes no sense to hold out an olive branch to someone still kicking you.That assumes both parties are willing to stop, yet from where I’m standing, both sides would love to stop the fight so long as they get in the last punch. Biden has an opportunity to stop the fight by not stacking the courts. Doing so would just be one more escalation in a long string of them.
